Thousands of protesters gathered in Valletta this afternoon, marching for truth and justice in the wake of the latest revelations into the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, while also demanding the immediate resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.

This was the latest protest of many that began when 17 Black owner Yorgen Fenech was arrested in connection with the Daphne Caruana Galizia murder. Fenech was recently charged.


While Muscat has announced that he will resign after the PL Leadership contest concludes in January, many are arguing that it is far too long for him to remain in power, especially since Yorgen Fenech has been making allegations about people close to him.


Protesters marched from Parliament down Republic Street and around other parts of Valletta, passing by St John's Co Cathedral, and ending up in front of Castille. While marching, the crowd was heard chanting 'Daphne was right', as well as 'mafia', 'justice', 'jail' and 'out'.

The crowd marched holding a banner which read 'Justice', as protesters also held photos of Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Muscat has announced that he will be resigning in January.
